Sorry to be a pain but just one more question.

If I do put 17s on it, will there be any problems such as performance issues, handling etc?

Any help would be appreciated, cheers.

Out of those two choices i would say the latter of the two...

as for size i would recommend 18" as 17's just look too small!

17's are too small IMO and don't fill the arches of a golf very well; I'd reccommend 18's as I've had on my previous golfs. You should not experience any handling issues and if anything lowering the car will improve the handling not make it worse. [:)]

uk_stu - Thanks mate. Will definitely look at 18s instead.

ASHeuro4 - Thanks for the advice. Good to know no problems will come of changing the wheels.

Anyone else got any ideas of possible wheels? Don't want them to look too OTT.

Personally I'd go for something OE looking, like RS4, RS6 reps or something from a TT.

Clearly I did as mine's on RS6 reps [;)]

JuZ - Cheers for the info. You don't think 19s would be too big? Because I really like the 19 RS4 alloys but just wondering about the size. Thanks for the advice! And yeah, yours do look pretty tasty on!

Haven't really decided how I'm going to lower it, love to go air ride but I haven't got that money, so will look into coils thanks Mat. I have a feeling that it will probably end up going lower [;)]

JuZ - I do like those. Have had a look at them and found them on Wheel Power in Devon for £450.00 -- (http://www.alloys-tyres-wheels.co.uk/index.php/by-size/18-inch/vw-scala-1552-rml-snowflake-18.html). Didn't like them to start with but now I keep looking at them and I'm coming round to them [:D]. Think they look really good.
